visual cues for thumbnails

Dear ID/As,

in his wonderful book "Tog on Software Design" Tog wrote:

"Thumbnails will replace generic-looking document icons, providing users with visual cues as to the nature of the material inside a container. Their appearance will go beyond today's thumbnails to reflect the amount of material they contain." [p. 196]

This is exactly what I like to do for OpenOffice.org/StarOffice thumbnails representing documents.

How to help a new employee to get started

I am looking for insight and best practices to how to help a new designer
get started with the team, company and the product. I haven't been in a
situation where I was responsible for this so I am slightly at a loss.

How do you approach getting a new designer familiar with everything. What is
a good way to spend the first day? What is a good day to spend the first
week? Is there anything you ask them to do specifically to benefit from
their fresh status?

2009/4/16 Erik Wingren <ixda at interactivism.com>:
> 1. What is your thinking/point-of-view on application-level security requirements for a mobile app, where one of its' features is to store personal, potentially sensitive data, when the app runs on a mobile device that already has built-in security layers at the OS-level?

It depends.
